“See the moon rise, as the sun dies.”~ Well Of Souls

As I sit here groggy and obviously defeated for any measurable amount of rest and sleep, I am here to speak about this subject and will only do so once. Even though I believe that I shouldn’t be paying any attention to it at all in the first place.

The 21st of December in the year 2012 is just another day closer and after some rather swift research these past few days, I am astounded to find that there are still some people who believe that the Mayan calendar is true to the end of days.

How many times has the prediction been made? Of course ALL of them wrong within the past 2,000 years:

  • 21 December 2012

What I would love to know is why the first day of winter? It is beyond me.

Still there are one in ten people who believe the Mayans to be correct. A majority of the world no longer believe in the hype. However there are those who are so afraid of it. These are children. And I think that adults and parents need to talk to their children about this subject.

And there are even hundreds more predictions in the future from next year in 2013 to millions and millions of years from now. Many people of different walks of life, faith, and even scientists and other public figures with their own predictions. They’ve all got it wrong so far. What makes anyone believe someone will get it right, ever?

Even if someone does, the world is over and that person won’t be around to say I TOLD YOU SO!

The civilization who originally came up with this prediction has vanished from the Earth over a millennium ago. Keep that in mind too.

2011

Almost there.

I noticed that several colleagues of mine who live in other countries have begun to wish everyone a happy new year. But for myself, 2012 is still several hours away.

And as extremely taxing and difficult as 2011 has been for me, I can honestly say that there’s been a whole lot of good that I could possibly reflect upon.

I started this blog back in February. Hoping to use it as a tool of releasing frustration, confusion, and overall make it an outpouring of negativity to get it out of my system based on some events that were just plain awful. Naturally, the tone to a majority of the posts would change. And today, I’ve accumulated nearly 200 posts. And I’ve had over 6,000 views to my blog. I am quite proud of that. I enjoy writing in this blog and I do see myself continuing to write.

I’ve made some new connections with people. Acquired several new acquaintances. And even walked away with my head held high from the bad ones.

I’ve made new friends. And friends I’ve had before, have become closer friends. And what is even more endearing is the fact that some of them who had been already close to me, I now cannot fathom life without them. To remotely think about it, makes me cry.

I’ve met in person many wonderful people! I came away with some memories that I will never forget!! And in others, I’ve crossed the lines, shattered the boundaries, and still came out squeaky clean on the other side.

I’ve received so much support from others. More than I would have ever been able to imagine. And I am grateful for that, and for them.

I’ve been given so much help in my hour of need to the point where I probably would never be able to thank them enough or repay them. But knowing that “thank you” was just enough caused me to learn that there are some people still left in this world who genuinely do care for me.

I keep making progress in sledge hockey, even though I was not able to finish out last season due to illness and the fact of the matter is that this season has barely gotten off the ground.

I know that I have repeated myself time and time again about how desperately I wanted to get away from 2011, but I feel that there’s so much more to be thankful for that did happen this year. Many blessings were bestowed.

And I look forward to advancing in 2012 with the hope and faith that regardless of the low-times of this year, which were plentiful, I can stand tall and push forward towards a better year, with all of the lessons and experiences to take with me as I learn. And leaving behind the bitterness, sadness, and things that would drag me down so heavily.

May we all learn our lessons both from the good and the bad of this year and apply them to better living in 2012.

To those who have played such a pivotal role in my life, I want to say thank you and .. I love you!!
